Screw these cops and their lawsuit. I hope they lose big time and end up paying legal fees out of pocket for this suit. Even though I was a close relative of a nearby agency, I have no sympathy for these two anymore.
Two LA County Deputies got shot by a piece of trash gang member with a Polymer80 weapon. Since P80s came out, criminals have been making DIY Glocks instead of stealing guns. Good for gun theft, bad for home assemblers and Polymer80.
PLLCA doesn't apply to manufacturers like Polymer80. General product liability should. The problem is that scumbag hoplopaths are suing because the courts are unwilling to enforce the fact that companies are not liable for misuse of their products.
My first instinct was that some shyster personal injury attorney got to the promising big bucks. Not so. Everytown is leading the suit. Which means their scumbags talked to the deputies and got them in as plaintiffs.
Based on the area and the surnames of the officers, I'm betting they grew up in a community with a poor gun culture where only criminals and cops had guns. The idea that average citizens might want to be armed and have guns that can't be easily confiscated is foreign to them. That and getting shot makes them a ripe target for being plaintiffs.
My long assumption and fear is that urban cops, particular minorities in heavily minority and Democratic Party controlled areas, will be the ones who are most anti-gun when Second Amendment totalitarianism and gun confiscation comes.
Screw these cops and I'm sorry I ever felt bad for them.
